Château Latour Grand Vin de Château Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

$799

This is so decadent and exciting on the nose, with very ripe fruit, tobacco, meat and cedar. Full-bodied, offering amazing raspberry fruit in the core of the palate. Ultrapolished, velvety tannins wonderfully coat every inch of your palate. This will age for years ahead, but it's so lovely now. Much better than many people think... Wine Spectator

A nose of pure cassis permeated by light cigar and graphite. Lighter weight than my limited recollection of aged Latours, it was nonetheless ethereal. Young. Blackberry and black-currant jam, lightly cedary minerality. Hints of red meat that made it a perfect match for rib steaks sous vide. Superb!

I was not blessed with the greatest birth vintage for Bordeaux (1991), but luckily my dear friend fared better (1989). Red currant, raspberry coulis, cedar, and graphite - the wine is still so fleshy, round and clean, nowhere near as tertiary as I'd expected going into the evening. It's structured, but also rather open knit after a quick decant. I hope to taste this Latour again in the coming years - as I believe it has many stories yet to tell. A special wine shared with even better company - there are worse ways to spend a Tuesday night.

1989 - perfect example- why you by at birth and leave it Un disturbed for 26 years. The oak is just beginning to integrate , but definitely perfect balance. Would benefit from time, but exquisite . Will improve and then last 30 plus years- enamored

Really nice length and grip. Still a bit tight, especially on the nose. Well balanced, which I like.
